Hello LMST Parents and Guardians, a quick note about the school closure tomorrow:


On Wednesday, Feb. 15th the Halifax Regional School Board released the following message by e-mail (emphasis for clarity only):

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Earlier today the Nova Scotia Teachers Union (NSTU) announced plans to initiate a one-day province-wide walkout on Friday, February 17.

As a result of this action by the NSTU, all schools will be closed to students on Friday.

The following programs/services are also cancelled for Friday:

  • EXCEL Child Care
  • Early Learning Opportunities
  • Early Years Centres
  • SchoolsPlus
  • Community use of school facilities will continue.

Should the situation change, we will work to communicate as quickly as possible. Information will continue to be shared on the Halifax Regional School Board website at:, on Twitter (@HRSB_Official), and in email updates similar to this one.
